Default Anyone having a problem with the "new post" arrow always blinking..?

very annoying, the new post arrow constantly blinks, even after I click on the thread, then hit "new posts" at the top to go back to the new posts. All the threads have arrows blinking? wtf..???

You mean the big green arrows at the forum listing level?

You can double click the big green arrow to turn it off.
It doesn't bother me either.

ehh, if you click on "new posts" at the top. It shows all the new threads/posts. Next to that there is either a green box of an orange box. Inside the box shows an arrow pointing down and to the left indicating you've posted in that thread. Just to the left of that arrow (in the same box) is a sidways triangle that blinks. This lets you know there is a new reply in the thread. Noramally when I open a thread that has this arrow blinking, the blinking arrow no longer blinks. No tho, it blinks all the time no matter what!

It is working normally for me. Only unread new posts blink. If I open one of them, read it, then hit new posts again, that thread is no longer green and flashing.

If all else fails you can mark everything as read. To do that go to the homepage, scroll down to the very bottom where it shows number of members & etc. You'll see a link titled "Mark Forums Read" click that and you will have no new posts.
